Just like hiring for any other position, you’ll want to interview your real estate agent before buying a house with them. If you’ve never interviewed an agent before, here are 7 questions you should ask.


  1. How long have you sold real estate?

  2. How long have you sold real estate in this neighborhood in particular?

  3. What can you tell me about the energy options in the area?

  4. What else should I know about utilities, like water/sewer and other amenities?


5. What do other clients who have moved here like about the area? What don’t they like?

6. What do people in this area like to do for fun? What are some popular weekend activities?

7. What can I expect about the buying process? What steps should I be aware will happen, and how often can I expect to hear from you?
